An excellent pair of antique sterling silver serving dishes of shaped oval form with crisp gadroon borders. Engraved to the front there is a fine armorial, the motto reading “Finem respice” which means “look to the end”; we are told that these are the arms of John Bligh, the 3rd Earl of Darnley. Of staggered size, the medium platter nests perfectly inside the larger platter. Weight 2166 grams (69.6 troy ounces). The larger platter measures 44.5 x 31.5 cms. The medium platter measures 39 x 26.5 cms. London 1770. Maker Parker & Wakelin.
These excellent silver plates are in very good condition with no damage or restoration. They have not been machine polished and retain a good antique colour. With clear and fully matching English silver hallmarks. The hand engraved armorials still retain good definition with a little wear. There is some slight surface scratching to the surface.
Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
